So I thought I'd throw this one out there:

Request an interview, either in person or on the phone.

In light of how ridiculously competitive admissions have been the past three years, schools are seeing this as a big chance to pump up their stats and try to climb the rankings. (That they all say that they could care less about, yet always manage to bring up every March or so.  ;) )

Yet, the Ad Comms are still going to be concerned about the composition of their upcoming class. So I've begun a campaign of making a point to let the schools I like know me as well as they can. With the end of being a known and familiar quantity when the committees begin to convene to sort the wheat from the chaff.

I've been amazed how responsive the admissions staffs have been. I've requested 3 interviews so far, and have been granted them. In fact I'm flying down to California to meet with the Dean of Admissions at McGeorge next week.

I'm planning on flying to Pennsylvania, Michigan, San Francisco, So-Cal, and Vermont during October if I can and if they will allow me to.

Never underestimate the power of being a pest.

Is anyone else trying this route?
Is anyone else having any luck with interviewing?

Thank you for the great information Hurley. This has been one of the more supportive, useful, and positive threads on the site.

Just wanted to send out much love and respect to all of you. I've been freaking out over my waitlistings and denials, and have been feeling pretty much alone through this whole process. I agonized over the decision to take the LSAT and all through the application process. With each negative, or no decision it felt like I was sacrificing a little of my ego, and self-confidence.

I realize now that I am not alone in this.

Just reading all the various postings, and feeling the humanity behind your words has helped me a great deal.

So mad props and deep flava to you all. I hope you all achieve your dreams.
